for probably four people who were convicted in russia of spying for the u.s. four people considered high value by the u.s. that we want to get back. one unresolved question here is what happens to the minor children of these ten and i just don't know what the answer to that will be, whether they'll stay here or whether they'll go back with their parents. i don't believe that when their parents get to russia they will be under any obligation to serve any time in incarceration, it may be that the judge will simply sentence them to time served which will be what, 11 days and they will be free to leave russia. once they agree to plead guilty, it's not really they choice. >> people are very curious for a number of reasons about this, the intrigue and so on and so forth, but can you at least tell us who would be behind the rapid speed of this transfer? is it the white house? who's pushing for this to happen to quickly? >> well, i think you can say very high level in both the russia and the u.s. governments. while this is following all the rules in the justice department, in the federal courts it's m

will plead guilty to being unregistered russian agents in the u.s. and agree to leave the country. now, our understanding, andrea, is this will not be a one-for-one exchange. they'll leave and go back to russia and in return, the russians will send probably three or four people that the u.s. would like to get back or get to the u.s., people who have been charged with spying for the united states in russia. we know one of them, igor sutyagin who was convicted six years ago, sentenced to 15 years of providing what the russians said was classified information to the u.s., something he has always denied. but we don't know the identity of all of them. but that's apparently how this is going to happen, andrea. if it does go ahead as planned, it's very possible that the ten in the u.s. coulding on a plane by tonight. >> this is just amazing, pete, for those of us who covered the disdents and how we were making exchanges back then, months and months of secret negotiations and hot line conversations. this is really almost instantaneous. it says a lot about the new open relationship. >> reporter: i t

in europe, you see more value there than in investing in any u.s. companies? >> i think so. it is not to discount the united states. the united states should grow faster than europe. it is just which the values and the prices have been discounted so substantially in europe because of the problems with their banks and the potential bailouts of greece and so on, that value is presenting itself. >> susie: now, it's interesting, even though today we had a big rally, and the stock market hasn't been like this in the last couple of weeks, and investors have been so worried, pouring their money into bond funds and into u.s. treasuries, and you see the best days of bond investing are over. how long can investors count on decent returns from bonds? >> i think the best days are over. and that means, simply, the days of price appreciation in terms of bonds added to the yield, which in many cases produced double-digit types of years are over, but it doesn't mean that bonds will go down in price and that 3% to 4% to 5% yields available to investors through pimco funds and others aren't

and that would be the u.s. part of the spy swap, the russians would send then people here to the u.s. we don't know exactly how many would be sent to the u.s. in return. in cold war style spy swap. but it certainly does appear that, you no he, the plea negotiations are -- have moved ahead sufficiently that they can try to get this done this afternoon when the ten appear in federal court. >> all right. we'll be watching for that court hearing, as i said, later this afternoon. pete, thank you. >> you bet. >> my big question today, is russia a bigger threat than we realize. share your thoughts on twitter, facebook or e-mail if you have thoughts about how the spy swap is going or memories of cold war, go ahead, give me a shout. >>> part of a global plot targeting other countries. the attorney general called that plot one the most dangerous since 9/11. it was part of a larger conspiracy by al qaeda that included a plan to target mass transknit england and we're getting new details this hour about arrests in norway. first, the three under arrest are suspected members of al qaeda, second, police sa
